6:09am
american university. give us the crash course "lobbying for dummies." >> the definition of a lobbyist in the united states is someone who advocates for someone else and is getting paid for it. >> reporter: the fingerprints of lobbyists are all over daily life. they defeated plans to cap credit card interest rates. they made pizza count as a vegetable on school lunch menus. they wrote a lot of the health care reform law. thurber estimates $9 billion is spent every year on lobbying and related advocacy, a top lobbyist can make millions the influence of business in washington d.c. is the third largest business after government and tourism. i think there's probably 100,000 people in the industry, not lobbyists specifically but in the industry supporting all of that in washington. >> reporter: and what do clients expect from their lobbyists? we asked gary lauer, ceo of a $150 million california firm
6:10am
called e-health insurance, a website that lets customers shop for health insurance from 180 companies. >> i was interested in getting some lobbyists, a, who had high credibility and, b, who could frankly get some doors open so we could explain what the situation was and what we think the remedy would be. >> reporter: specifically he was seeking to change the rules of health care reform so low-income americans can use government subsidies to buy insurance througcompanies like e-health. lobbyist lanny davis agreed to represent e health. what would you say is the good, the bad and the ugly of lobbying in washington d.c.? >> the good is you meet interesting people. certainly if it's a cause you believe in, you go to members of congress and you can be passionate and truthful and do the opposite of what most people think lobbyists do. the bad is that most people think you're sleazy and you're doing something against the public interest.
6:11am
>> reporter: davis founded purple nation solutions, a p.r. firm that does lobbying. he's former white house counsel to president clinton and friend to hillary. his political connections date back to democrat bobby kennedy and extend well past republican george w. bush. >> president bush and i were fraternity brothers together in college. despite our political differences we were very close friends. >> reporter: davis sees his role as an educator, teaching members of congress about his clients' issues. >> the most important function a lobbyist provides is to provide facts and information. >> reporter: but first they have to get their foot in the door. >> hi, congressman, how are you? reporter: the business of lobbying is shrouded in secrecy. >> great to meet you. reporter: we were given rare access to the inner workings. including this networking event for lobbyists and their guests. >> i really specialize in
6:12am
technology and helping those small technology companies through the process. >> you find that champion for your cause and you ride that for all its worth. >> reporter: our cameras were allowed along on actual lobby visits, being conducted most any time congress is in session. davis is such a familiar face in the halls of the capitol, republican congresswoman mary bono mack greets him with a kiss. >> lobbyists trade on -- if you want to use the bad word -- trade on friendships. >> excuse me. this is a won woman. >> do i ever ask a friend to do something contrary to their values and judgment on the facts? never. >> you know i've been a friend of the congressman for many years. >> i do. reporter: today they're paying a call on pennsylvania democratic congresswoman. >> that's why i try to make sure my door is open to everyone. and that we get the right information so we can make the
6:13am
best decisions. >> reporter: there are two components to successful lobbying. access and money. donations from lobbyists and their clients to members of congress. while it's illegal for members of congress to cast votes in exchange for campaign contributions, that would be bribery, there's plenty of walking right up to the line. >> i think that when people give campaign contributions, they are not there simply to improve the workings of democracy. they're there to buy access. >> everybody in washington who is a lobbyist gives campaign contributions. almost everybody that i know as a lobbyist. money itself is not bad. the question is, is somebody honest or going to be influenced by the money. >> reporter: but the professor says the relationship between lobbyists and congress is sealed by one guiding principle. >> the iron law of reciprocity. the iron law of reciprocity meaning i'll help you if you help me is ingraind in politics.
6:14am
it's ingraind on the hill. >> reporter: that's perfectly legal. >> that's perfectly legal. and it's nontransparent frequently. >> reporter: the campaign donations and fund-raisers often take place out of public view. earlier this year, we took hidden cameras to this swank key largo resort to observe as lobbyists and other big donors paid thousands of dollars to spend the weekend with republicanmen mostly freshmen. on the golf course, charter fishing on a boat named good life. over drinks at the resort bar. >> these freshmen, about half of them said they were aligned with the tea party movement, had high ideals about changing washington, the debt and the deficit and tax reform and everything but also about campaign money. well, they realized that campaigns are very expensive. if you want to win, you've got to bring in a lot of money. >> reporter: efforts to regulate
6:15am
lobbying date back to 1876 when the house first required lobby i haves to register with the clerk. in the 21st century, the lobbying industry has become a revolving door for lawmakers. they retire from congress and make more money returning as lobbyists, often getting special access with their former colleagues on capitol hill. a study by the watchdog group public citizen found that 43% of the members of congress who left office between 1998 and mid 2005 went on to register as lobbyists. in 2007, thurber advised then senator obama, who championed sweeping lobby reform. >> big money and lobbyists were clearly drowning out the aspirations of the american people. >> reporter: lobbyist jake abrahm off had just gone to prison for cheating clients and bribing congress. lawmakers passed new reforms that required strict public disclosure of lobbying
6:16am
activities and limited the gifts and trips lobbyists can buy from members of congress. today thurber has some surprising words about president obama. >> president obama in his campaign in 2008 said he was going to change the way washington works. >> i will launch the most sweeping ethics reform in history to make the white house the people's house and send the washington lobbyists back to k street. ( applause ) >> he hasn't. he's failed. because if you want to get a piece of legislation like his health care piece through, you have to bring in big interests. he did. he brought in a.a.r.p., he brought in hospital associations, he brought in the a.m.a. in a coalition to support that. >> reporter: increasingly lobbyists aren't just influencing legislation. they help write it. even davis recalls being put off by that facet of a lobbyist's role several years ago >> there were 40 lobbyists in the room.
6:17am
we were arguing as if we were elected to something, about the placement of a comma. i kid you not. the placement of that comma had a huge -- i won't explain why, but trust me -- it had a huge importance. i thought to myself, if the american people were really here and we were on c-span, there would be blood in the streets. >> we're going to talk about neuro science >> reporter: in the end e-health's lobbying was successful in changing the rules. low-income americans will be allowed to use their subsidies to buy insurance on e-health. did you have to write a proposed regulation to hand them? >> we've written a lot. at the end of the day the regulation didn't use all of our language. that was fine. but it caught the essence of this. and it included some things that these people in health and human services thought were important which we agreed with. >> that was a good meeting i would say that the process here is far from elegant. the process here involves influence >> you guys still do a lot of
6:18am
military? >> democracy is a messy way of governing yourself. and there are imperfections that people vote for bills that they don't read. they vote for words that lobby i haves have written. but it is the system that's better than any other system. we just have to make it better in my view by having more transparency. ♪ >> osgood: coming up, the cold facts. ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time?

>> osgood: and now a page from our sunday morning almanac. october 7, 1956. 56 years ago today. a cold day in kitchens across america. for that was the day clarence robert byrdseye, the father of frozen foods, died. born in brooklyn birdsiowas a natural working in northern canada when he noticed that fish he caught froze almost instantly in the frigid air. and when cooked and eaten even weeks later tasted almost fresh. the secret, he realized was to freeze food fast. so he developed his patented double beltd freezer which froze and packaged foods at temperatures reaching 50 degrees below 0. birdseye struggled to get his business off the ground. so in 1929 he sold his patents
6:21am
to what would become the general foods corporation. for $22 million. that's about $300 million in 2012 dollars. he remained with the company though and the following year birdseye frozen foods hit the market. >> some freeze food. birdseye freezes flavor. >> osgood: including 18 cuts of meat, spinach, peas, fruits, fish fill as, even blue point oysters. skeptical of the new technology the public didn't immediate warm to frozen foods. but during world war ii the industry got a boost because of rationing canned goods became scarce opening the door to frozen foods packaged in cardboard and cellophane >> they are sweet as the moment when the pod went pop >> osgood: birdseye and other frozen foods took off especially when families started eating dinner in front of another revolutionary invention: the television. today frozen food is a

6:25am
>> reporter: if any painter has captured the rugged beauty of maine's coast, the thrilling play of water and light against rock, it has to be winslow homer. >> he's a realist and he's a naturalist. he's interested in telling you about the power of nature in a singlingal wave. he wants you to feel the spray in that painting itself. >> reporter: and though many of us are familiar with what winslow homer painted, until now, we haven't had a chance to see where he painted many of his master works. his studio on prouts neck just a few miles outside portland where he lived and worked from 1883 until his death more than a
6:26am
quarter century later. >> he could walk down to the cliff, see what he needed to city, sketch, come back up here and then paint it in the studio >> reporter: mark is director of the portland museum of art which just finished a five-year renovation of the studio. if you read this picture... now open to the public for the first time, it was purchasedded directly from homer's great grand nephew. >> the building was authentic because the family never wanted to adjust it and move away from the feeling of winslow homer >> reporter: winslow homer etched his name into one of the windows. his chair and his pipe are here along with a sign he posted outside the house. it helps explain his reputation as a character and a curmudgeon >> people would come knock the door and want to see his paintings so he would lean this against the fence to basically say, "don't bother me. don't come in. i don't want to talk to you."
6:27am
>> reporter: winslow homer was born in boston in 1836. his father was a businessman; his mother a water colorist who painted these plates that hang in the studio. homer got his start as a combat artist working for harper's weekly during the civil war. >> our painting sharp shooter one of his first painting was originally an etching but it turned into a painting >> reporter: before he settled in maine homer lived and worked in new york and studied in europe too. but his work was always distinctly american. this painting, artist sketching in the white mountains, shows his sense of humor. >> he creates a painting of himself painting the mountains and then another artist painting the mountain and another. so it's kind of a caricature of the tourist industry beginning. >> reporter: other early works like "snap the whip" and "breezing up" celebrated the joys of everyday life.
6:28am
>> if you look back and think about, you know, who was truly the first artist to represent these things that were american, whether it's subject matter, the way in which he paints, the way in which he lived his life, he is that quintessential person >> reporter: but it was a coast of maine where winslow homer moved in his late 40s that transformed him into the artist we know today. he ended up here because his older brother charles, a real estate developer, purchased land on prouts neck to build a family compound. winslow homer chose the carriage house for his home and studio and had it moved to a spot next door where he could study the ocean's moves. >> we're kind of walking on... this is sacred ground reporter: to celebrate the studio's opening, the portland museum has mounted a new exhibit devoted to the work homer produced at prouts neck.
6:29am
including weather beaten. >> every time you go to it there's something new in the sky. there's something new in the wave. there's nothing between you and that painting. >> reporter: but not all of homer's master works are ocean scened. this one, painted in 1893, is full of foreboding and seems to suggest that the old fox represents the artist himself. >> fox hunt, many consider one of the top ten american paintings of all time >> reporter: why? usually the fox is the hunter. in this case, the crows are hunting the fox. many people think it's him looking at the end of his life >> reporter: homer died in 1910. and i know this is important toward the end of his life. >> he did die in the studio. whether or not he died directly on this day bed, this is always thought of where he died and in
6:30am
space >> reporter: where it's preserving >> it's worth preserving reporter: this whole studio, a fitting tribute to an american master. >> i think he sures just art history. it's about culture. maybe that's what makes him bigger than many artists because it's not just the visual arts. he's part of our psyche, i think, as americans. >> osgood: just ahead, trick or treat? dan hurd: when i was a child, california was a leader in education funding.
6:31am
erika derry: and the fact that california isn't making it a priority frustrates me. dan hurd: i'm ashamed of that, and i don't want this to continue for my daughter. brenda kealing: prop 38 is going to bring a lot of money to our schools. suzan solomon: the money stays at the school site. cade derry: what i would really like to see is that the teachers... that were laid off come back to the school. navaz hurd: a smaller class size.
6:32am
navaz hurd: as a mom i want that. as a teacher i want that. prop 38 is an opportunity of a generation. >> osgood: there are pumpkins and then there are pumpkins. here's steve hartman. >> that's history reporter: history it's actually history reporter: pumpkin history. for david in and pumpkin growers across the globe, this is the year they've all been waiting for, the year they would hopefully get to see a pumpkin that makes these look like pom granite seeds, that dwarfs even the 1500-pound giants you see at contests, a pumpkin so massive most growers thought the pound adjust wasn't possible >> it would basically implode. that the shell of the pumpkin the ribs inside wouldn't be strong enough to hold that weight
6:33am
>> reporter: like aerospace and the sound barrier, sports and its four-minute mile, the holy grail for giant pumpkin people has always been the one-ton pumpkin. for decades growers have been pursuing this in vein. >> 1500 pounds reporter: but a few months ago rumors started circulating that there were some giants growing in the backyard of this house in green rhode island even though the owner planted foliage to discourage looky-lous, people were trying to get a peak. the grower wanted to downplay expectations until at least one of them got weighed which happened last week. >> 2,000-pound pumpkin reporter: sure enough it topped a ton. 2,009 pounds but here's the really amazing thing. that was supposedly his light pumpkin. the one that looked even heavier and definitely more grotesque was still in the garden >> it's not a beauty contest reporter: where all summer
6:34am
long it had been putting on up to 40 pounds a day. >> putting on 30 to 40 pounds a day you could almost watch it grow >> no doubt about it. reporter: you can see it grow you can see it reporter: of course there is a science to this which ron explain and which i didn't understand >> atmospheric nitrogen reporter: i've driven to toledo in things that weigh less than this pumpkin. yesterday ron took it to another competition in warren rhode island for its official weigh-in. 6,000 people showed up hoping to see it break scale or maybe eat somebody or at least set another world record. although larger in circumference than his other monster this one actually weighed less >> it's 1872 reporter: it was a disappointment for the gathered throng and the frankenstein who created the pumpkin. ron was down but definitely not out >> let's go for 2500 pounds reporter: when will this stop? i'm worried about them taking overing the earth >> there has to be a limit at some point. there's a limit on everything, i think >> reporter: let's hope.
6:35am
and god forbid he ever gets his hand on a buts he will sprout. >> osgood: ahead, ladies... 1, 2, 3 strikes you're out osgood: ladies play ball. but first... >> you're an associate producer at best >> reporter: ... just like in the movies. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you've been years in the making. and there are many years ahead. join the millions of members who've chosen an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. go long. i love my extrabucks rewards, and right now, they're doubling!

>> you can teach somebody to be a director in a day? >> you can teach a monkey to be a director in a day >> here again is charles osgood osgood: the plot of a soon to be released ben affleck movie seems too outlandish to be true but it is indeed based on a true story and what a story. here's our cbs news national security correspondent david martin. >> reporter: everybody who was alive at the time remembers it. the iran hostage crisis. 53 americans held captive at the american embassy in tehran and then the agony of a failed rescue attempt which left eight american servicemen dead. what you might have forgotten is that there was another rescue mission, one that succeeded >> this is the only thing that we did in iran that worked. >> reporter: and tony men degrees was the guy who made it work. the man known as the c.i.a.'s master of disguise went into tehran and brought out six u.s. diplomats under the noses of revolutionaries chanting, death
6:39am
to america." >> just like robbing banks except in our case we had to make it look like the money was still there >> the other guy doesn't know he's been robbed >> and he's happy. reporter: that was 32 years ago. men degrees is now retired, slowd by age and illness. but he is about to appear on the big screen played by ben affleck >> my name is tony men degrees reporter: affleck is the star and director of argo which, as they say in hollywood, is based on a true story. >> these are the screen plays reporter: there's delicious irony in that since men degrees went in to rescue, in his words ex-fill trait the americans disguised as the head of a hollywood scouting crew looking for locations to shoot a movie entitled argo >> you need a cover story reporter: a lie maybe it's not credible but it's so strange that it couldn't be false. it has to be true >> i need you to help me make a fake movie >> you came to the right place
6:40am
this movie, if it weren't true, it would be terrible. it would just seem absurd. >> what do you mean the c.i.a. is trying to get people out of iran and now they turn to holy wod for help? the fact that it's based on true events means that you have to sort of take it seriously >> you want to come to hollywood and act like a big shot without actually doing anything >> right you'll fit right in reporter: men degrees and oscar-winning make-up artist john chambers played by john goodman made up a sci-fi movie called orgo whose plot could be described as buck rogers meade the middle east. why the name argo? >> it was kind of a battle cry we used when things were going a little dicey. >> reporter: the code name for this c.i.a. caper came from an obscene knock-knock joke. knock knock, who's there? argo argo who? argo, you can figure out the rest. but argo had to be more than a punch line to a bad joke. it had to have all the trappings
6:41am
of real movie which is known in the spy business as back stop >> we have to admit some offices. if you go there or you call them up to answer the phone... >> reporter: you have an office in hollywood >> we decided to call it studio six productions because there's six of these guys and gals >> reporter: the six americans had gotten out of the embassy just before it was taken over by an angry crowd and were hiding out in the homes of canadian diplomats. lee schotts who worked for the u.s. as an agricultural attache was one of the sick >> we got so good at playing scrabble that some of us memorized the design on the back of the tiles and we could avoid a q or pick up a u. i mean hours and hours >> reporter: for all the boredom it was becoming increasingly apparent the iranian were on their trail >> the canadian ambassador was getting anonymous phone calls asking for them by name >> reporter: with time running out, men degrees and one assistant flew into tehran as carrying members of studio 6 productions. >> my chore was to get in and
6:42am
